Students in Digital Art & Photo 2 may choose their focus: motion graphics & animation, or photography and photo manipulation. Motion graphics & animation students develop skills on state-of-the-art iMac computers as well as their own laptops equipped with the latest Adobe Creative Suite software programs. Drawing tablets with stylus pens are provided. Students will learn how to rig characters and animals in the first semester and later learn how to model in 3D. Photography & photo manipulation students will explore Lightroom and Photoshop to manipulate their images. Students spend a considerable amount of time viewing and discussing image quality and editing techniques. Local field trips will add valuable inspiration to student photographers and opportunities to explore nearby beautiful locations they might not otherwise find. Students should supply their own iPhone or equivalent with a fully functional camera. In addition, a digital SLR camera would be beneficial but is by no means required (the Canon EOS Rebel T6i at about $500 is one good choice). Assistance is available upon review.
